Grizzlies to host RMAC Volleyball quarterfinal
Ticket details announced
ALAMOSA, Colo.— Thanks to their 4-set win at Fort Lewis in Durango on Friday, the Adams State College Grizzly volleyball team has clinched the right to host a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Tournament Quarterfinal match on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in Plachy Hall. The Grizzlies’ opponent and final seeding will be determined following Saturday night’s regular season finale at Colorado Mesa.
Accordingly, ASC Athletic Department officials have announced ticketing plans for the match, the first post-season contest the Grizzlies will host this century.
The Plachy Hall ticket window will open at 6 p.m. Admission for adults will be $8 while students, including ASC students, children and seniors will be charged $4.
As it is an RMAC Championship event, no passes of any kind, including Grizzly Club passes, will be honored for complimentary admission. However, Grizzly Club members are still urged to bring their membership passes as only members will be allowed to sit in the Grizzly Club section on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The match can also be heard live on KSPK-FM (104.1 in Alamosa) and via the internet at www.kspk.com. Live statistics for the match will also be available on the Grizzlies’ website and can be accessed by clicking here.
Fans that cannot attend in person can also watch the match online via AmericaOne. (Exact link TBA). The cost of that option will be $9 for a day pass and previously purchased season passes will not be honored. However, the purchase of the day pass will allow the viewer to watch all four RMAC Quarterfinal matches from around the conference.
After defeating Fort Lewis on Friday night, the Grizzlies raised their overall record to 17-8 and their RMAC mark to 11-6. They are tied for first place in the RMAC West Division along with Western New Mexico and will be either the first or second seed from the West Division.
The Grizzlies have now qualified for the RMAC Tournament in four of the last five years and reached the semifinal round in 2007 and 2008.
Saturday night’s match at Colorado Mesa, a possible RMAC Quarterfinal Tournament opponent, will begin at 7 p.m. in Grand Junction and can also be heard live on KSPK. The Mavericks will carry 11-16 overall and 6-11 RMAC records into that match and must defeat the Grizzlies and get help from Colorado State-Pueblo at New Mexico Highlands on Saturday night in order to earn the fourth and final playoff spot out of the West Division.
A Grizzly victory on Saturday would give them at least a share of the RMAC West Division crown. They can win the title outright with a victory and a Western New Mexico loss to reeling Western State on Saturday. The Grizzlies last won the RMAC West Division title in 2003.
